i went to Roosevelt for 6th and 7th and it was horrible. the principle didn't care if you were being bullied on and the security saw kids skip and actually started a conversation with them. And the ladies in the office are RUDE they act like they don't care and they use their computers for personal reasons more than business. the kids put their hands on the teachers and the teachers aren't even there. the 7th grade social studies teacher got hit will a book and pushed down the stairs and then when she did come back it was like 2 weeks and she was rude. but what would you think she got hurt twice. so if i had to rate this school on a scale of one to ten it would get a zero. on the other hand my band teacher was awesome. he helped my be a great saxophone player. Thx Mr. Saindon. and my math teacher was hilarious and a awesome math teacher. thx to Mr. Pitta i really understand math and on the last day he was funny. And my english teacher Ms. Haddon, she was tough on me but that was because she cared about me. i woudln't be great at english without you. She is fun and really cool. Plus she always was there when i needed her thx. sincerely S.N.L.
I feel That Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts has opened many doors for me. The teachers are excellent and one of the teachers has nominated me for a trip to Washington D.C. The art and music and dance programs are phenomenal. The students can only fully embrace this school with the academics and arts if they have open minds and they are willing to do so. This isn't a school for a problem child, thuis is a serious school for a child who likes both academics and arts. As an 2009 alum I do recomend this to a serious student. The classes have helped me prepare for International Baccalaureate programs at Rufus King.
I love Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts because it allows my child to think outside of the box and it allows my child to learn through the arts. It offers a diversity in learning that I don't see any where else.
Roosevelt Middle School of the Arts is a great place to learn. Students are immersed in the arts as well as the academics. The staff and administration work with students and parents to maintain a successful learning environment.
As a former teacher at Roosevelt, I believe Roosevelt encourages students' creative talents, while focusing on a strong academic standards, in a multi-cultural environment. A fine program.
I think Roosevelt is great and they teach alot of acadimics, and its not horrible but not all students are doing there best but a great amount of them are or at least trying. I am a student there and again I wouldnt change for any middle school in the world un less they paid me. Also Ms. Roundtree is an excelent Principal and the staff is great too. So there is my point of view. I think the parents responce below me is not right but thats what he or she said.
This school is horrible. The teachers are lazy. I feel that they teach the arts more then acadimcis. The principal she is just tells you what ever you want to hear not a good school!
Roosevelt can be a good school, however when there is not a lot of leadership in the school it is hard to avoid discipline issues. It is a choice school and parents need to realize that if your student is not interested in the arts, this is not the school for them.
Well this school, in my opinon, is wonderful. Atleast when it comes to attendance and being a great arts school. But, many of the students there are not doing as well as they should be for their grade level. So by the time these kids get to highschool they are not going to really be prepared. The teachers are teaching what they're supposed to.
Excellent opportunity for creativly gifted children. My daughter attended Roosevelt for 3 years. She maintained a 4.0 GPA, appeared in many performances, and had wonderful experiences. Her favorite teachers were Mr. Tate, Ms. Upchurch, Ms. La Cosse, and Ms. DiFina. The artistic director, Ms. Shear is amazing, and Carita Lee, the Principal is outstanding. I highly reccommend this school.
